This report is the last in a series of publications prepared under the project Living with Risk #148; Sharing Knowledge on Disaster Preparedness in the Himalayan Region, implemented by ICIMOD during 2006 and 2007 and funded mainly by the European Commission through their Humanitarian Aid department (DG ECHO) as part of the Disaster Preparedness ECHO programme (DIPECHO) in South Asia. The book (published on-line only) documents the results of two workshops one early in the project which looked at the status of disaster preparedness planning in the region, and one at the end of the project which looked at social inclusion in disaster preparedness plans. It provides a short background to the project and workshops, a synthesis of the major findings and recommendations, and details of the proceedings. The publications, training sessions, and workshops were undertaken in the context of the Hyogo Framework for Action 2005-2015 which recommends that regional organisations should promote sharing of information; undertake and publish baseline assessments of disaster risk reduction status; and undertake research, training, education, and capacity building in the field of disaster risk reduction.
